The distressed caller disclosed that while Ogbeifu who resides at  Akoko Crescent, Yakoyo area of Ojodu went to the compound of the deceased at Omolara street Yakoyo, he was sent away from the compound having been warned not to come to the compound before.

On getting home, he informed his mother who then followed him to the said compound where the deceased was met within the compound.

While the mother was quarreling with the deceased and demanding the reason why her son was sent away, the son, who is deaf and dumb took a broken bottle which he brought with him and used it to stab the deceased on the neck.

Upon the distress call, the DPO Ojodu Abiodun, Eyitayo Akinluwade mobilized his men and moved to the scene, where the two suspects were apprehended and the victim was rushed to the nearby hospital for treatment, but she was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.

The corpse of the deceased was deposited at the mortuary for autopsy.
